There's no other word for it
We've finally reached that point
The whole situation has become pathetic

There's no two ways about it
We've fallen into a reeking garbage dump
The whole damn thing has turned to stinking crap

The end is just a matter of time
Bunker mentality will now begin to set in
Denial, lying, and obfuscation will become the norm

The rats will start to maneuver for position
No one will want to admit that the ship is sinking
But they will all place themselves for the final leap to shore

The Iraqi people will keep fighting us and each other
American troops will keep fighting and dying for a lost cause
And the politicians in Washington will keep waging their tongues

The criminals that started this walk of shame
Will walk away from the White House, completely free and clear
They will justify everything they have done and retire in wealth and comfort

The megalomaniacs who cooked up this evil mess
Will join the corporations they are beholden to, write their books
And give speeches around the country, for obscene amounts of money

The situation in Iraq will descend into chaos
In the end, a winner will fight to the top of the heap
And some form of government will finally control the ship of state

We are well on our way to super-power hell
The place where all empires of hubris finally end up
And the whole damn situation has become just plain Pathetic
